    The history of the James River Harrisons in the Colony of Virginia began in when Benjamin Harrison I left England for America by way of Bermuda. Author J. Houston Harrison references the tradition, supported by other writers, that Benjamin had four brothers: Thomas, who also ended up in the south, Richard and Nathaniel who were in the north, and Edward who remained in England. When the Virginia Central Railroad was completed as far as Staunton in , the little Valley town became one cog in the vast network of the continent's railways. Strangely enough, this event, which seems monumental in its historical implications, is given only a passing announcement in the local paper.
